>> dragon spacex -- >> reporter: both companies have learned space is hard. both are running more than two years behind schedule. and with neither yet certified to fly people, nasa is considering buying two more soyuz seats to guarantee continued american access to the space station. are you concerned about the delays? >> so we don't like delays. we don't like delays, but worse than a delay is launching something that's not ready. mission success and safety is the number-one overriding concern. and we're not going to do anything to put these crew in jeopardy. there is no cost or schedule pressure here whatsoever. >> reporter: now inside the crew dragon capsule, spacex is sending a dummy named ripley. a smart dummy equipped with sensors all over to gauge the impact of this flight. bianna, boeing is also having a flight demonstration just like this one. it will be next month. it will send up its spaceship called "starliner."

good morning to our viewers in the west. it's friday, march 1st, 2019. welcome back to "cbs this morning." ahead, former acting fbi director andrew mccabe is here in studio 57. we'll ask him his view of michael cohen's testimony and when to expect the russia's investigation final report and youtube cracks down on crude comments targeting children. ways for parents to protect their kids but first, here's today's eye opener at 8:00. a startling new report that president trump ignored advise on giving jared kushner access to highly confidential
8:01 am
documents. >> officials expressed concerns that the president's son-in-law could be vulnerable to foreign influence. >> north korea wanted sanctions relief on effectively every product except for weapons. >> cohen testified here on capitol hill this week for about 30 hours. democrats say that cohen laid out, quote, a road map of criminality committed by the president. >> in a fiery speech that outlined his defense that he didn't do it and is the victim of a witch hunt, prime minister netanyahu called the planned indictment political persecution. >> kim jong-un's other best friend none other than dennis rodman wants to lend a hand. rodman sent the president a letter saying he believes trump could be the front-runner for the nobel prize. this is the letter from the desk of donees in k. rodman. first of all, there's no way that dennis rodman has a desk and was when the k. now? now he's dennis k. dennis rodman. what does that stand for, dennis
8:02 am
karate rodman? >> this morning's eye opener is presented by liberty mutual insurance. i'm john dickerson with bianna golodryga. norah and gayle are off. >> the "new york times" says mr. trump ignored intelligence officials concerns about kushner's business and personal ties to foreign entities. the president's demand reportedly troubled members of his administration so much his chief of staff at the time john kelly wrote a memo about the order. then white house counsel don mcgahn also noted the objections raised by the cia and others against giving kushner access to highly confidential material. >> the president denies any role in kushner's security clearance. the house oversight committee began investigating the situation last month. the committee chairman, democrat elijah cummings, says the white house has not yet produced a
8:03 am
single document or scheduled a single interview relating to kushner's clearance. the president's former attorney michael cohen returns to capitol hill next week for more closed-door testimony about mr. trump. late, the house intelligence committee will delongtime trump association felix seder about the president's reported talks to close a business deal in moscow during the 2016 campaign. the committee also wants to hear from allen wiles berk the trump organization's chief executive officer. cohen testified that weisselberg was involved in hush money payments. the president said in an interview showed last night that cohen lied and made the payments without telling him. >> he maude the decision, and remember this, he's an attorney. whatever decision he makes he's supposed to rely on an attorney to make a decision. >> mr. trump was also asked about special counsel robert mueller's report on the russia investigation which could be released next week. >> it's a shame, but it's just one of those things. you live with it.
8:04 am
you win it. so i hope it's going to be an honest report. if it isn't, we fight it very strongly we fight it because when you look at what happened at the fbi at the top levels, with mccabe and the dishonesty, comey and the dishonesty. >> former acting fbi director andrew mccabe argues that the president is dishonest in his new book, "the threat." how the fbi protects america in the age of terror and trump. mccabe writes, quote, the president exposes himself as a deliberate liar, someone who will say whatever he pleases to get whatever he wishes. if he were on the box at quantico, meaning an fbi lie detector, he would break the machine. andrew mccabe is here in studio 57. good morning. >> good morning, john. >> before we get to the president, i want to ask you about the mueller report. >> sure. >> so it might come out or it might be delivered as early as next week to the justice department. you write in your book about handling the hillary clinton e-mail investigation and the internal deliberations over how to report your findings to the
8:05 am
public. >> that's right. >> reflecting on that experience, how do you think the mueller report should be handled when it's handed over? >> well, it's -- i think it's very easy to compare the two in the kind of headline approach but obviously the circumstances are fundamentally different. i know that many people had issues with the way we handled the july announcement of our investigative results in the hillary clinton case, so that's something i'm sure that the folks out the justice department will be thinking about as they decide what to do with this report. i can say that from my own perspective i think it's imperative that the report is shared in its most robust form first and foremost with congress and i think following that the american people have a right to know as much information as is possible to come out from the report. >> rob rosenstein this week made headlines when he said transparency doesn't always work back when it comes to government revelations. do you support what he said, and do you think that he was alluding to the mueller report not being seen by the public or even congress?
8:06 am
>> well, i think rod was referring to the longtime doj policy or practice of not sharing facts and circumstances of cases that are not charged. that certainly is the precedent and the tradition, but as we know, we also have a justice department that has many examples of departing from precedent, tradition in the recent past. i think that the incredibly extensive sharing of not just report conclusions but fbi underlying investigative materials in the hillary clinton case, sharing at an unprecedented rate with the hill, those are decisions made by the department of justice, and i think they will have a tough time reconciling that act with the deputy attorney general's statements. >> mr. mccabe, the country watched michael cohen testify to congress congressional oversight this week. witness? >> mr. cohen clearly has credibility problems. not often that you hear a
8:07 am
witness testify who has already pled guilty to lying to congress, but it's -- i think it's important to note, alex, that prosecutors and agents have a lot of experience working with witnesses that have credibility problems, and the way that you rehabilitate those witnesses is you let them tell their story but then you back that story up with corroborating information, corroborating evidence. the thing i found fascinating by michael cohen's statements was the amount of exactly that sort of corroborating information that he referred to and maybe revealed in his testimony, so there is a lot -- there's a lot there. i wouldn't dismiss mr. cohen as a witness who would be, you know, unhelpful to any sort of prosecutorial efforts simply by virtue of his guilty plea in his own case. >> you write in the book that the support a threat to the nation. part of that is what you identify as his lack of candor. what do you mean by that? >> i think that the president's relentless attacks on the fbi
8:08 am
and on the intelligence community writ large make the job of protecting this country, keeping our citizens safe harder every day. in many, many ways. there's the obvious overt attacks on things like recruiting cooperating witnesses and ongoing prosecutions, techniques that are absolutely lawful, and in some ways form the bedrock of our ability to be successful in big complicated cases all the way down to just the constant undermining of the work that the men and women of the fbi do every day, referring to investigations as baseless witch-hunts and things like that. it is dispiriting. i think it erodes their ability to get in the game and do the job every day, and it erodes public confidence in the work that they do which is not helpful. >> let me ask you about the news overnight, that the president reportedly intervened on behalf of jared kushner to get him a top secret security clearance. did you know about this given the fact that the fbi conducts background checks, and how many unusual is it for a president to
8:09 am
intervene on behalf of somebody? >> so my knowledge of this situation is limited to the reporting that i've seen today, but i will say in my own experience i have been involved with high-level security clearance matters for many years. i have never seen a president or an administration react to the recommendation of the professionals in this way. it's a question that the president has the ability, the power to do exactly what is alleged in the article, but i think it's one more example that people should take very seriously. the mere fact that the president has the authority to act in this way doesn't necessarily make it a good idea. there is a very detailed, thoughtful, careful process in place to ensure that security clearances are only given to people under optimal circumstances. when that process results in a negative recommendation, that is something that i have always seen administrations at here to. >> recruit cement down at the
8:10 am
fbi over the past ten years, specifically over the past few years for top special agents. how much of any that have do you attribute to the president constantly attacking the fbi? >> you know, i can't -- i don't have the facts and figures to support that, but, i mean, it's -- it's undeniable. it doesn't help. and the fact is we need a consistent supply of the best and brightest young minds that this country has to offer across a vast spectrum of talent that we have to draw from, to ensure that this incredibly important work gets done effectively every day, not just today but into the future. that is very troubling to me. >> as we talk about reliability and reliable narrators, it's important to bring up that the inspector general report that justified your firing from the fbi says you, quote, lacked candor on four separate occasions. what does that mean? did you lie, and should the american public believe what you have to say in terms of your assessment of the landscape? >> they should. they should. i would love to sort through
8:11 am
that report with you. i disagree with the conclusions contained therein. what i can tell you, alex, is i never deliberately misled anyone, not in the accounts that they relate in that report hand not in any others. i'm very proud of the 21 years i spent serving in the fbi, serving this nation. i did so with an absolutely unblemished record until the point at which the president decided to start attacking me pubically. so i have deep disagreements with that report. i would ask the american people to judge me on the work that i've done over the course that have career. >> really quickly, do you think the president is the going to finish his term? >> i think that the overwhelming likelihood is that he will. >> andrew mccabe, thank you for

8:34 am
youtube's comments section to share time stamps of when children were in compromising positions. youtube's ceo susan wojcicki tweeted yesterday that nothing is more important than ensuring the safety of young people on the platform. the company said it disabled comments from tens of millions of videos. it is also working on a new system to better detect and remove predatory comments. "wired" senior writing and cbs is here.tributor issie lapowsky- good morning. >> good morning. >> what do you make of this move? >> i think youtube is making a pretty strong statement that predatory behavior has no place on the youtube platform. youtube's entire ball game is generating engagement. it's getting people to watch videos and comment on them so this is a big business move for them. they say that it's going to take months to roll out, to suspend all these comments because they have to first identify the videos at risk for these kinds of comments so it's a really big deal. >> and a number of companies already pulled ads, correct?
8:35 am
>> absolutely. at&t has pulled ads and hasbro told some reporters that they have pulled ads so obviously this is not just the public outcry, but there's outcry from youtube's advertisers. they can take a small hit but they dough need to do something fast. >> there's been a number of reports that there are videos with very popular children's characters like pepa the pig. i should know this more but my son is not old enough to watch. pep ark the pig is hugely popular and there's reports that there's obscene content in those videos. >> pepa the pig, mine craft, a lot of popular children's franchises. this is content that's basically masquerading as kids' content but then it glorifies suicides or school shootings and it's really scary stuff. the first step to take is go to youtube kids which offers a lot more parental kids than the youtube main app. on youtube kids you can pick trusted channels that youtube has selected so think pbs or sesame workshop. parents can also create their
8:36 am
own customized list so you know what your kids like to watch and what they will be begging you to watch so can you create that list of channels and approved videos. you can turn off searchability, and you can set a path pose so that older, smarter kids aren't able to override your settings. also use settings based on the age of your children and create different profiles for your children so parents need to be proactive out thereto because it's scary out there. >> passwords and codes are key. can you address this momo challenge and whether or not it's hoax or if it's actually real and it is this online concern that children are being encouraged to hurt themselves. >> it's a hoax. >> okay. >> it's a hoax. can't say it enough. the more we talk about it tends to give oxygen to this kind of thing. this is, you know, started as a viral hoax intend topped worry parents and intended to get people talking about it, but youtube has said and reporters have found that there's no evidence that children are actually taking action on these
8:37 am
videos or that these videos are really kind of spreadings in any way, but that's not to say that there isn't risk out there, that there aren't videos glorifying suicide and that are targeted to kids so as we talked about it parents need to take these precautions. if it's not against m ho mo there's a lot of other stuff out there you need to be cautious of. >> how quickly can youtube clean up something like this because they have had various issues over time. advertisers have been nervous. they have said they are going to -- is it sort of possible to dispense with this quickly and get the advertisers back, or is this really a labor intensive -- >> by their own admission it will take months to address this comment issue because you think how tough this is. youtube tries to address a lot of this stuff with algorithms, and algorithms know how to find sexually explicit content or graphic violence, but a lot of these time stamps, a lot of these comments appear benign in isolation. only when you match them up to the videos themselves you realize how sinister they are so this is a whole new learning
8:38 am
experience for youtube. they are working on their algorithms and rolling them out to try to find this stuff a lot faster. >> last question, i don't have to watch all these videos with my kids, then. steps are being made and taken to make sure that what our kids are watching are safe. >> i think you should still monitor your kids' watch history and make sure you know what channel you are watching. i don't think you have to watch every up of these videos, and they are taking those steps but there's no replacements for parents to guide them. >> only so much pepa i can take. issie lapowsky, thanks so much. good you have to on. technology could make a huge difference for some of the tiniest patients. another dry day today with mostly to partly cloudy skies. the rain comes back tonight into tomorrow morning. we have scattered showers tomorrow and a few showers on
